Bindaios, also Binda, was a town of ancient Pisidia inhabited during Roman and Byzantine times.[1] Under the name Binda, it became the seat of a bishop.

Its site is located near Küçük Gökceli (formerly Findos) in Asiatic Turkey.[1][2]

Ecclesiastical history[edit]

The bishop of Binda was a suffragan bishop of Antiochia in Pisidia.

No longer a residential bishopric, it remains a titular see of the Roman Catholic Church. Past incumbents include John D'Alton (1942–1943), Ignácio Krause (1944–1946), Celestino Fernández y Fernández (1948–1952), Eugen Seiterich (1952–1954), Bernard Joseph Topel (1955–1955), Joseph Calasanz Fließer (1956–1960), Cletus Joseph Benjamin (1960–1961), Gaetano Alibrandi (1961–2003).[3]
